The ET-R&D project is funded within the ASPERA-2 framework for the period from 1 March 2013 to 29 February 2016. It is aimed at essential R&D tasks in preparation for a technical design of the Einstein Telescope. While the basic design mostly relies on techniques well developed and tested for the advanced detectors, several aspects still require R&D with long lead times. We will target the most important of these topics in the ET-R&D project via 5 working groups (WGs).

The 8th ET Symposium will be hosted by the Institute of Gravitational Wave Astronomy at the University of Birmingham from 27th to 28th of March, 2017.
The first day of the meeting will be focused on the crucial tchnologies for 3G observatories, the morning of the 28th of March will focus on the science motivation for 3G and finally in the 28th afternoon we will discuss about the 3G and ET future, organisation and strategy.
Registration opens on the 22nd of February 2017. Here it is the link to the event.
